|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
A teenager of the '80s travels back in time to the '50s, where he must arrange for his mismatched parents to meet--or else he won't exist! Wonderful, wacked-out time-travel comedy takes its time to get going, but once it does, it's a lot of fun, building to a frantic climax just like other Bob Gale-Robert Zemeckis scripts (USED CARS, I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND, 1941). Lloyd is a standout as crazed scientist who sets story in motion. Huey Lewis, who sings film's hit song, ``The Power of Love,'' has cameo as a high-school teacher. Produced by Steven Spielberg and company. Followed by two sequels and an animated TV series.
